Nice work. Lots of work involved.
Next step is to see if the fish like them as much as we do :D

I would recommend a UV Flashlight, to check Fluorescence.

The beauty of tape is that you can easily remove tape and try again.

Try to keep track of light conditions when you find a pattern that works and see if the results are the same the next time you see those same conditions.

Some colors just seem to work better when paired with a specific other color.

Have fun! Remember, if they have never seen it before, it may be the ticket, when everything normal fails.

Thanks guys for the positive comments. I need to get a better air brush for the painted lures. But i will try them out this coming spring for sure. Will keep track of what works and what dont. They are taped then i apply a clear coat over them to protect the tape from fading. I enjoy making them for sure with winter coming there will be more.

They look awesome! I’ve been air brushing some myself, what have you been using for clear coat?

I will have to get the can and will post it for ya. I got it at wal mart in the craft section. I did it in hopes of keeping the tape from fading time will tell i did those spoons mid summer and held up great with it.
